Leonard R. Boyer's answer
You should discuss this with your real estate attorney who is representing you in the closing. I do not believe the seller has any duty to disclose anything other than things that are in the neighborhood. If the so-called "project" is in any way, physically on your property, then that raises different issues. Good luck.
